Gulfstream Park will have a guaranteed pool of $300,000 on its Rainbow 6 on Saturday.
First post will be 1:15 p.m. for an 11-race card. The Rainbow 6 will be on the sixth race, which has a scheduled post of 3:58 p.m.
That will follow a wild Friday on which there were no Rainbow 6 tickets with all six winners.
There were three tickets with five winners. Each received $16,256.94 on a 20-cent bet.
The rare lack of at least one ticket with six winners was a consequence of four winners at 13-1 odds or higher in the Rainbow 6 races.. In the fourth race (first leg of the Rainbow 6) the winner was Uncle Runt at 104-1.
Per its rules for days without the jackpot take down requirement of just one ticket with all six winners, Gulfstream added $20,902 to the carryover—raising it to $159,786.
Thus, just over $140,000 will have to be bet for the pool to hit $300,000. If it falls short, Gulfstream will make up the difference.
But based on betting patterns on Saturdays, it is likely that bettors at Gulfstream and at other locations will combine to wager $200,000 or more on the Rainbow 6.
The Rainbow 6 is a 20-cent per combination-only bet. Multiple horses can be used in each race, thus setting up a ticket with multiple 20 cent combinations. For example, a ticket with two horses in each race has 64 combinations and costs $12.80.
*On the first race, there is an overnight carryover of $2,653.97 on the Super Hi-5. It is a $1 minimum bet that requires picking the first five finishers in correct order, with no consolation payoffs.
